of investigation is very different for the fbi then it is for the atf. my basic question is why -- why does atf have one process of investigation and the fbi has a very different one? the scope of the task that you mentioned in your report with atf, there is a regulatory function and the criminal function that overlap at times. there were obvious issues that happened. i will allow you to make a comment on one of those. i have one more issue as well -- the size of the agency and what they were trying to accomplish. as i read 3 report, page 338 there was an interesting comment that alluded to the fact that the atf was over their head. they had too few people, trying to take on this massive task. it looked like they were trying to accomplish something big but did not have the right people. this group of atf agents were in way over their head and should not have been engaged in this. i have one more issue i want to visit on -- i will talk a little bit about the issue. regulatory vs criminal responsibility, and the task given to atf. do you have recommendations on that based on your investigation? >

enforcement, work at airports, coalesce and collaborate with the f.b.i. and d.e.a. and a.t.f. and others around the question of security. i am glad these programs are being expanded for security purposes, for efficiency purposes, for utilization of our tax dollars in the right way. and that is why i'm pleased to see the majority -- that the majority and the ranking member, along with members of the democratic part of the committee, at my request, in submission of an amendment, accepted my amendment during committee consideration to authorize $400 million for the transportation security grant program for f.y. 2012 and f.y. 2013. this funding will ensure that transportation agencies have the resources needed to secure our public and mass transit systems. i would argue that it complements what we're doing in aviation, which together maintains the nucleus, if you will, of transportation security. so i'm hoping that this will move quickly through the united states senate and find itself on the president's desk. it is crucial. i then hope that my colleagues can come together for us to put on t

that threatens the safety and liberty of the sih community. while the f.b.i. tracks the overall number of hate crimes, it doesn't target sikhs despite that we are seeing that sikhs are singled out because of their appearance and faith. that's why this resolution denounces the violence befallen this community or calling on the department of justice to finally be documenting and quantifying hate crimes against sikh americans. as many as three out of four sikh boys endure torment and bullying from their peers and so we're educators across the country to help end violence. and we're erging law enforcement officers in every locality to do all they can to prevent violence against this and all communities. america was founded on the principles of religious freedom, acceptance and tolerance. let's make sure that every american can live safely and in peace. let's make sure that every american is protected. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. poe, for five minutes. mr. poe: thank you, mr. speaker. over the last week, we have watched as

circumstances. this is a job for the fbi, not the cia. by the way, by and large, most of the information that we knew, we knew it about the guy coming in to try, and it was derived from foreign. our base of knowledge of him was foreign intelligence. to me the right entry point was enemy combatant, n.h. -- agent of war, deal with it that way. the roots of the information are that we should treat this as a law enforcement problem. in broad measure, my sense is that that is how we should do with it. thank you all for coming here this afternoon. i hope you have left with more questions than it had and you came in. that was my intent. they you for giving me the opportunity.

, is a california based solar panel manufacturer that not only went bankrupt but was raided by the f.b.i. a week later and they lost almost a half billion dollars. my colleagues, this bill was systematically put together carefully. it will phase out the department of energy's grossly mismanaged loan guarantee program by simply stopping d.o.e. from issuing any loan guarantees for applications submitted after december 31, 2011. but for those applications submitted prior to december, 2011, cut off date, the legislation allows them to remain eligible to receive a guarantee but subjects them to tougher, tougher scrutiny. and provides taxpayers strong new protections, including, let me outline these four basic protections, forbidding the subordination of u.s. taxpayer dollars at any time to private investors. number two, requiring the department of energy to submit to congress that temperatures report that details the specifics of any new loan program. which is going to be guaranteed by the taxpayers. requiring the department of energy to consult with treasury prior to any restructuring of a guarantee
